Life is Good and Post Fourth of July Hangover!

Created by Michele Kovack
Good morning! How was your holiday weekend?
Mine was filled with family and friends! Friday night, Saturday, and Monday we had company.  AND we managed to swim with Cortney every single day she was home! Yesterday I was pretty tired from all of the socializing, swimming, eating, and drinking the occasional cocktail.... ;)  
So that explains my lack of posts! 
So today, I am back into my normal routine and have a card on the SRM blog.
Created by Michele Kovack
I used a stencil and Tim Holtz distress inks for the background as well as the shaker portion of the card.  I used this adorable sticker from SRM called, We've Got Your Sticker Plus/Birdie as the focal point of my card....along with the sentiment.  I used lots of adhesive foam tape from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L to adhere everything.  A few sequins and a bit of twine finished off the card.

I am so excited to announce that next week my husband and I are going on our first vacation alone in 23 years!  We are heading to San Francisco for 5 days!  He has planned a jam packed week complete with Sonoma Valley Wine tour, Alcatraz, Lombard Street, The Wharf, Bus tour.....
I have my camera ready....so be prepared for an onslaught of pictures! ;)
Thank you for stopping by today!!!

Sounds like you had a wonderful 4th of July weekend Michele! You are very blessed. I love your beautiful and bright shaker card! I've always been a fan of yours since the Cricut days! Your vacation with hubby sounds awesome! I was looking forward to me and my husband finally getting away ourselves since we finally have our 6 boys raised, but he passed before that could happen. So get out there and enjoy your time with your husband! Hugs, Brenda
